Construction has begun on
"The Village"
This summer construction has begun on "The Village"....a grouping of up to 5 cabins built COMPLETELY to the Federal ADA guidelines, so that handicapped individuals can comfortably and safely enjoy the MANY pleasures of Camp Elk Shoals. This activity is occuring on a parcel of land located on the road that leads up to the Stafford Lodge (just a short ways above the Camp Director's residence).

Located on the banks of the pristine New River in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Elk Shoals United Methodist Camp is just the place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of "everyday life."

We cater to both large groups and individuals. Groups can be "housed" in one of 3 "environments" (ie., in the dorm rooms at the Stafford Lodge, or in the Dorm rooms in the Mission House, or at the Adirondacks).

For individuals, couples and families: whether you want to camp out in your tent under the stars, spend the evening in your camper or RV, enjoy the companionship of a large group....or the privacy of having your own room: this Camp offers the outdoor enthusiast and nature-lover a multitude of activities that almost guarantees there will never be a dull moment.

We need YOUR help to allow us to serve MANY MORE of God's children, & to bring more youth each year to our Interfaith Camps!

The mission and outreach of Elk Shoals is widespread. Our latest concern is to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. On Sunday, (9/3/05) the offering from the worship service held at the Chapel was dedicated to the relief and $821.00 was sent to UMCOR, to be used in their disaster recovery efforts. On the LOCAL level, the congregation of the Chapel on the New has adopted the Ashe County Sharing Center as an outreach program by paying the monthly "rent" on the building which houses the Sharing Center. A Harvest home service was held in November 2005, with a collection of food gathered at the Sunday worship service to be donated to the Sharing Center.
